After months of preparation, we were delighted (and relieved) to exhibit at PRINTING United Expo 2022. The Ultraflex exhibitor booth was one of 700+ exhibitors, and energetic, curious attendees flocked to our booth to see the newest and greatest products on display. Our products were creatively showcased in many applications using a Mad Men-era, retro NYC-inspired theme. Below are the highlights of what was featured in our exhibit.
VorTex™ Soft Signage Solutions is a leading industry fabric and textile line and a popular choice for many application-driven printers.
VorTex™ Bolero S225 is a woven polyester fabric with a bright white point that enhances this subway-style design.
The backside of our deck structure showcases VorTex™ Grand Display D223, a crease-free, tight-knit fabric with a billboard-on-brick design.
Within this “office,” a stunning cityscape view using VorTex™ Backlit Event T202 reveals the textile’s crisp and brilliant high-resolution capabilities when printing wide-format graphics.
PVC-free and phthalate-free products, such as the ReSource™ Backlit S180, made with recycled woven materials, were also displayed. PVC-free materials are in high demand as the sustainable industry grows and consumer interest increases. The EcoVantage line was among the top attractions as attendees sought the latest sustainable products.
The new product showcased was VorTex™ Transfer Paper, a revolutionary dye-sublimation transfer paper available in 65gsm, 85gsm, and 105gsm weights. On display was a comparison of different weights of paper to fabric, showing the difference in color density and vibrancy.
Ultraflex would like to thank everyone who visited our booth during Sign Expo 2022. What a fantastic turnout! At this year’s expo, we showcased a wide range of our high-performance digitally printable textiles, flexible materials, and rigid substrates.
Our holiday greetings extend to all of those who supported us during the year. There is no better time than now to express our gratitude and sincere appreciation. From all of us at Ultraflex Systems, thank you so much. Happy Holidays and may you have a healthy and prosperous New Year’s!
Please note our holiday hours: Friday, December 24 – Closed Thursday, December 30 – Closed Friday, December 31 – Closed Our normal business hours will resume on January 3, 2022.
Ultraflex Systems Holiday Party marked many milestones and accomplishments this year. A special award was presented to employees who have been with us for more than ten years. Those recognized were Kylie Schleicher (10 yr), Louis Lopez (15 yr), Claudio Izquierdo (15 yr), William Lyon (17 yr), Annalie Carter (21 yr), Susan Schleicher (20 yr), and John Schleicher (30+ yr).
“For over thirty years, Ultraflex has invested in providing the highest quality products to our valued customers. Ultraflex has invested in tools and equipment throughout the years to help manage, handle, and sell its high-quality products. While these two assets (products and tools and equipment) are highly important to the company, I believe our most important asset is our employees.”
